Baby Gear // HALO SleepSack Giveaway

{Disclaimer: This post was brought to you as a partnership with HALO. Emerson received a  HALO® SleepSack® Wearable Blanket  to test. As always opinions are 100% my own. Emerson tested and mom approved.}

A well rested baby makes for a happy baby and mom! We're very fortunate that Emerson sleeps through the night... most nights. Don't get me wrong we have nights where she'll wake up at 3 or 4 a.m. eat then go right back down. Either way girlfriend likes to sleep and boy are we happy about it.

Up until she was three months old we used easy swaddles at night, but then she started breaking free. Enter a sleep sack. Essentially it's a wearing blanket. We can put her down at night knowing she's warm and safe.


We've tried a few different brands, but keep going back to the HALO® SleepSack® Wearable Blanket. We love that she has plenty of room to move, it's sleeveless (nice for warm summer months), and zips open from her feet to neck. The zipper makes it nice for diaper changes. The sleepsack is available in a variety of prints/colors, materials (cotton or fleece) and sizes (up to 5T). I plan on buying a fleece sleepsack for winter -- it gets cold in Tahoe! You can't beat the price for peace of mind either. Plus, Emerson has learned when the sack goes on it's time for bed. #winning

They also have a bassinet for parents wanting infants to sleep in their room during the first few months. My friend Jane actually has one and loves it!

Safe Sleep Tips

ALWAYS

Place baby to sleep on his or her back at naptime and at night time.
Use a crib that meets current safety standards with a firm mattress that fits snugly and is covered with only a tight-fitting crib sheet.
Remove all blankets, comforters and toys from your baby’s sleep area (this includes loose blankets, bumpers, pillows and positioners). The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests using a wearable blanket instead of loose blankets to keep your baby warm.
Offer a pacifier when putting baby to sleep. If breastfeeding, introduce pacifier after one month or after breastfeeding has been established.
Breastfeed, if possible, but when finished, put your baby back to sleep in his or her separate safe sleep area alongside your bed.
Room share, but don’t bed share. Bed sharing can put a child at risk of suffocation.
NEVER

+ Never put your baby to sleep on any soft surface (adult beds, sofas, chairs, water beds, quilts, sheep skins etc.)
Never dress your baby too warmly for sleep; keep room temperature 68-72 degrees Fahrenheit.
Never allow anyone to smoke around your baby or take your baby into a room or car where someone has recently smoked.
As part of Emerson testing out a SleepSack, HALO is kindly offering one lucky reader a HALO® SleepSack® Wearable Blanket valued at $26.95!
